  • "According to a long-term national strategy, children’s chances complex programmes are implemented in 23 underdeveloped subregions of Hungary. Our paper aims to present the spirit and structure of the programme, analyze its achieved results, and address some future challenges. Data sources of our study are: national and subregional statistical data, project documentation, online monitoring system, and interviews with those working in the field. In the first phase we have created four program element sub-clusters on the basis of what needs they intend to focus on: biological and health; educational and cognitive; social and emotional; recreational needs. The second research phase deals with how the individual programme elements accomplished their intended goals of fulfilling unmet needs. According to our results, children’s chance is a well-targeted project since it reached a wide range of children and disadvantaged children are overrepresented among them. Involvement in different programme elements reflecting on first three development needs is quite balanced. However, the complex programme still faces a number of challenges such as (1) deficiencies in child-oriented strategic planning, (2) not handling the shortage of specialists perfectly, (3) quality of existing services improved only partially, and (4) unsustainable results due to the scarcity of local resources and weakness of civil society."
